Future Apple computers may be capable of displaying images in 3D, without requiring polarized glasses. Apple on Thursday filed a patent application for a three-dimensional display system.
"Recent developments in computers and computer graphics have made spatial 3-D images more practical and accessible," the patent application explains. "The computational power now exists, for example, for desktop workstations to generate stereoscopic image pairs quickly enough for interactive display."
